Pinecones.

  1. This is such a cool idea, amazingly creative.

    I also am a collector, my thing is vintage Steiff Teddy bears, dolls, and animals. I blog regularly about my collection (500+) and about Steiff at mysteifflife.blogger.com; take a peek if you can.

    What's so interesting about collecting is that there is always another story to tell!!!

    Keep up the good work! Steiffgal

  4. Lisa, let me congratulate you on this wonderful blog!!! I have a question that I'd like to ask you. For like... ever I have heard my mum say that a collection was made of a minimum 9 items. You would not have a collection if you had 5, 7 or 3 items. Nine made a collection. My friends laugh when I say this. i'd like to have your opinion on the subject...

  6. Farala, I say three or more, but that is just me. Plus some of my photos do not show entire collections, just parts. I make the rules for this project fortunately.

  8. farala and lisa - I've often wondered the same and have concluded for myself that two of anything constitutes a collection, my reasoning being that you have one item it is for practical purposes - you use it until it is used up/worn out/broken, you then throw it away and get a new one - but you have two of the same thing, then you are collecting.
    (Of course there are those who use all their collections but that's another story)
    (tongue firmly in cheek and smiling at the same time)

  9. wow, this blog is amazing, i especially love the photos of your collections of vintage photographs and old postcards. this drawing is amazing -- i agree with above comments about it making a great print! i absolutely adore pinecones, but we don't get many where i live -- sydney is too warm for pine trees. i would like to reblog this picture on my tumblr, if that is okay?
